[MLS] New England players Shalrie Joseph and Kevin Alston were sent home earlier
this week from the Revs' training camp in Orlando, Fla., after Joseph was arrested by police officers.
According to an Orlando Police Department arrest affidavit, Joseph was arrested and booked following an incident stemming from police officers responding to complaints about a loud party at the team hotel early Monday morning.
Joseph was arrested on charges of “trespass in dwelling after warning” when he refused to return to his room as ordered by the officers.
“I’m not doing nothing wrong," he said. "I’m not going anywhere.’’
The team sent home Joseph and Alston, who was not mentioned in the arrest report, later that day.
New England has not given a reason for the players' dismissal from the training camp. It returned home from Florida Thursday.
The Revs head to Georgia next week to play two games against the Crew and one against Houston.
"We are aware of the situation involving Shalrie Joseph and Kevin Alston and we understand the New England Revolution are dealing with it," MLS executive vice president of player relations and competition Todd Durbin said on the league's official website. "The league will determine if any action is necessary."
